The Dal Khalsa took out a march to commemorate the 33rd anniversary of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
BATHINDA: Demanding the right to self-determination and justice to the families of victims of 1984 anti-Sikh riots in Delhi and other places, Sikh organizations led by Dal Khalsa on Wednesday carried out the ‘Genocide Remembrance’ march in Bathinda.
Terming the massacre as state-sponsored mass killings of Sikhs, Dal Khalsa sought the intervention of United Nations for an international inquiry into the pogrom. Hundreds of activists carrying saffron flags and placards marched on the streets starting from Gurdwara Haji Rattan to Qila Mubarak.
Former jathedar of Takht Damdama Sahib Balwant Singh Nandgarh, ‘Panj Pyaras’ (five beloved ones) sacked by Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) and United Akali Dal secretary Gurdeep Singh Bathinda also participated in the march.
Dal Khalsa president H S Cheema said, “The UN must press upon the Indian government to find a peaceful resolution of the conflict that gave rise to genocidal pogrom against the Sikhs.” source from – tribuneindia.com, timesofindia
